Much like acclaimed fantasy authors George R.R. Martin and Tamora Pierce before her, Alex Liddell ditches the Twlight-esque romance for a butt-kicking, sword-wielding heroine who would make Brienne of Tarth and Eowyn of Rohan proud to include her in the “shieldmaiden’s club.”
The plucky young heroine is Renee de Winter who is a senior cadet in the Academy at Tildor, a country that has just crowned a new king and is full of tension thanks to two warring crime families that are determined to wreak havoc and exploit the new ruler’s inexperience. Although she’s mournful over the fact that she’ll never be as strong as her male classmates, Renee trains 24/7 in order to defeat the naysayers and bullies that would love to see a female warrior fail.
